The Rattle Baby Disco took place at Open in Norwich, and saw youngsters and their families take to the dance floor at the Bank Plain venue.

More than 600 people enjoyed a mix of music which ranged from David Bowie to Blur to songs from The Jungle Book.

There was also a chill-out area and the chance for little ones to have fun with messy play, face painting and crafts.

Becky Edwards, one of the organisers, said the aim of the disco was to create a sensory wonderland for children and their parents to enjoy together, and she said there had been a great response to Sunday’s event which was sold out.

She said: “Somebody said to me it was one of those places where everywhere you go there was a smiley face and everybody was happy the entire time. It was kind of like going into a wonderland of fun.

“It definitely had the wow factor.”

It was the third Rattle Baby Disco put on by Becky and her fellow organisers, Jack Williams Dodd, Michelle Pinnington and Morgan Pickard.

The previous two were at Norwich Arts Centre and The Fire Pit at Wendling.

Following the success of Sunday’s event, Miss Edwards said they hoped to organise another Rattle Baby Disco at Open in the future.
